Cops on the Hill: Stories from the spring of 2021

Cops on the Hill

Stories from the spring of 2021

 Personal:  Just a note to let you know I have survived 3,120 miles of bad roads, bad road shoulders (yes, we need to fix our roads) and a few bad drivers.  I will do the last few miles to the beach at Ocean City, Maryland this Sunday.  I will return to work on Monday, May 24.  I am eager to speak to the other half of the Congress about drug policy reform/total drug decrim.

There was essentially 0.0 movement on drug reform on the Hill the two months I was away.  Sigh.  About seven States introduced total decrim but none have gone anywhere.  Nonetheless, I will bring my energy and time to the issues.

Favorite Story:  At a Subway in Kansas a wheat farmer (it turned out) – my age – asked why legalize heroin and then he launched into how wonderful medical marijuana had helped several in his immediate family.  Attitudes have absolutely shifted in this country.

Activity this week:  I had some late dates set up while I was en route to Oregon and did them on the fly.

* Consider being a member of COP at $40.00 or more per year. All contributions are tax-deductible. 40 dollars buys all the copy paper COP uses in one year. Law Enforcement’s voice in opposition to current policy is vital on the Hill to achieve a repeal of federal drug prohibition. COP provides that voice. www.citizensopposingprohibition.org
